\u201cCrypto Brahma\u201d was a prominent investor and social media influencer. He was also behind the Moon Club, a paid membership group that provided investment tips for cryptocurrencies. He disappeared a few days ago, but not before announcing that he \u201cgot greedy\u201d and took money from the group\u2019s initial coin offering (ICO). However, he insists that the intention was never to run an exit scam and he promises to return all the investments. The amount of money involved isn\u2019t known. However, on April 26, Crypto Brahma sent an email that reads, \u201cI confess a mistake and guilty on my part. During our recent ICO pool, at a certain point, got greedy & felt like using the funds for margin trading at a low leverage\u2026 In that moment, felt like an opportunity that needs to be taken\u2026 The subsequent actions coupled with fear and the pressure to refill the lost amount lead to a series of mistakes, and eventual chopping out. \u201cI know many of you think of this as some sort of exit scam. I know your trust & faith in me has been shaken\u2026 Never did imagine would have to break your trust. Today, promise, over the next couple of months, you will have your reimbursed probably with interest. I just need to be able to trade in a stress free environment. That\u2019s the reason I\u2019m confessing my guilt.\u201d He adds that he expects to make restitution to everyone within the next five months and that he is available through email. However, all of the social media accounts\u2014Telegram, Twitter, Discord\u2014is now non-existent. On a positive note, his TradingView account appears to still be active. There have been plenty of ICO and exit scams in the Bitcoin ecosystem, especially after Bitcoin Core (BTC) skyrocketed in price at the end of 2017. However, for the most part, the \u201cWild West\u201d environment is calming down. There will always be some, though, that game the system, just like there are in any industry, everywhere in the world. Even banks, with all their experience and financial stability, still try to get away with scams.
